I met Chris over 22 years ago and there is a lot to say. In 1989 I lived in San Francisco for a few years and Chis was one of my roommates. I stayed in SF for two years before moving to Los Angeles to attend Art Center. Chris had a lot to do with that decision actually - he left for the east coast to attend the Yale School of Drama and I figured if he was going to do that for acting why shouldn’t I do something like that for photography.
The acting thing totally worked out for him and now I get to see him almost every week on HBO’s True Blood. If you're not already a fan you should totally watch it. It’s scary sexy goodstuff. Chris isn’t the only one in this family of four with a successful career in the theater. Laura is a broadway costume designer and has worked with David Mamet for years. She works in film and television too but I do love to say “Broadway”.
It was a crisp and sunny day and a lovely way to end the year. Spending time with old friends and photographing the Bauers, Chris, Laura, Beau and Mercy.
